Twitter has changed the way I watch basketball games and I didn’t realize how much until twitter decided to fail whale during a playoff game a couple of weeks back. This new outlet has become synonymous with the NBA with everyone from the the league, to analyst’s, to players and fans on board making it for a very entertaining place as an NBA fan. On nights when Reggie Miller is calling games I tend to use the mute button through the games and enjoy the commentary provided by people on twitter and it has made for some of the most entertaining basketball in years (it helps too that each of the series’ have provided for some heart attack moments) There are tons of great people to follow on twitter but this list is cut down to 10 people who are “must follows” for the playoffs (and beyond of course) some provide wit, some provide play by play and others give you the stuff you wont catch on TV!
@russbengtson Pure JOKES… He can make a snooze fest 30 point blowout feel like the game of the week.
@docfunk The man with the one liners… sad that I only recently found him on twitter.
@ArashMarkazi Having credentials from SI, he is at the games giving you the as-not-seen-on-TV goodness
